Could Donald Trump’s rhetoric create the next Dylann Roof or Timothy McVeigh? That’s the assertion made by former Apprentice participant Kwame Jackson, who has been increasingly vocal about the GOP presidential aspirant in recent weeks.

Hoping to reach black voters, GOP spends big on far-left radio company

In an attempt to gain black support, could Republicans accidentally boost Democratic candidates?

After securing just six percent of the national African-American vote in 2012, there’s no debate over whether Republicans should try to improve their fortunes in 2016. But how would that best be achieved?

In response, the Republican National Committee has launched #CommittedToCommunity, designed to “engage, empower, uplift” through targeted advertising in key cities beginning with those in Ohio. Radio spots began airing today in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus, with other markets to be added as the election approaches. Read all »

A longtime political strategist who has worked with President Jimmy Carter and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is calling for the mass execution of Republicans and conservatives in the name of animal rights.

When the identity of the Chattanooga terrorist who killed four Marines was first made known yesterday, it made for some awkward moments at CNN.

Just how uncomfortable was the atmosphere? Law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes said of “Muhammad”, “we don’t know that it’s a Muslim name. We know it’s an Arabic name.”

CNN National Security Analyst Juliette Kayyem also danced around the issue, hesitant to admit to what extent the revelation would change the investigation’s course. Read all »

HuffPo 'fires' Trump 17 July 2015

HuffPo ‘fires’ Trump from political coverage, backlash ensues

Calling Donald Trump’s presidential campaign a mere “sideshow”, Huffington Post editors today announced that future coverage of the Republican primary candidate will be relegated to the entertainment section “next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.”

Speaking on behalf of Arianna Huffington’s liberal online publication were Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and Editorial Director Danny Shea: “After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.”

The announcement was trumpeted on the HuffPo’s home page: Read all »

Chattanooga terrorism: can they really call it a ‘tragedy’?

Another disturbing, cold-blooded terror incident on American soil, another race to downplay the Islam connection. Have we seen this movie before?

After the killing of four Marines, Chattanooga is in a state of shock, while politicians (even Republicans) label it a “tragedy” rather than an outrage and crime against humanity.

This quote, for example, came not from President Obama, but US Senator Bob Corker (R-TN): “I am heartbroken by the tragic shootings that have taken place today in my hometown. We have been in touch with federal, state and local officials and continue to monitor developments and have offered our assistance. This is a difficult day for Tennesseans and our thoughts and prayers are with all affected by this tragedy.” Read all »
